    A West End Affair with Broadway's Best*

    Set your alarms, Londoners! Neil Simon's iconic comedy, 'Plaza Suite', is making a grand entrance into West End theatre, as reported by WhatsOnStage. And guess what? It boasts a stellar cast with the likes of two-time Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick and two-time Emmy Award winner Sarah Jessica Parker! Under the deft direction of Tony Award laureate John Benjamin Hickey, the Savoy Theatre is about to be lit from 15 January to 31 March 2024. 

    Tickets, Debuts, and a Dash of Broadway History

    Priority ticket booking for 'Plaza Suite' kickstarts on Thursday, 14 September, 10am sharp! But if you miss it, don't fret. The general public can pounce on their tickets the very next day. Here's a sweet deal – a weekly online lottery will offer a lucky few £40 tickets for each performance. Stay tuned for more on that!

    Matthew Broderick, still shining from the afterglow of his 2019 West End success, 'The Starry Messenger', is back to claim the London stage. However, here's the juicy tidbit: this is Sarah Jessica Parker's West End debut! And if their New York success is anything to go by (consider the "third-highest grossing play revival in Broadway history" feat), West End is in for quite the show!

    The plot? Oh, it's a delightful whirlwind. In 'Plaza Suite', our power duo portray three distinct couples, each set in a renowned hotel room. While Broderick flexes his acting prowess as Sam Nash, Jesse Kiplinger, and Roy Hubley, Parker steps into the shoes of Karen Nash, Muriel Tate, and Norma Hubley. 

    Behind the curtains, the squad's all-star: with names like two-time Tony Award victor John Lee Beatty (think set design) and five-time Tony Award conqueror Brian MacDevitt (your man for lighting design). 'Plaza Suite' is brought to life by a powerhouse production team, featuring the likes of Ambassador Theatre Group Productions, Gavin Kalin Productions, and more.

    So, London, ready to experience a dash of Broadway brilliance?
